One of the most well-known encounters in the Bermuda Triangle happened to Bruce Gernon Jr. on December 4, 1970. Bruce and his father had built up a successful real estate brokerage in southern Florida. By his early 20s, Bruce already had about 600 hours flying time and was very familiar with Florida and the Bahamas. However, none of this prepared him for an encounter which over 30 years later still puzzles him. For those of you who are long-standing buffs of the Triangle’s evolving mythos, you have already heard versions of Bruce’s account, the first in 1977 in Charles Berlitz’s sequel Without A Trace, and from Arthur C. Clarke’s Mysterious Universe, Discovery Channel and on a recent TLC documentary on the Bermuda Triangle, for which this webmaster was the Consultant. This is, however, the first time it is told on the web. I had a chance to chat with Bruce over email several times, plus to speak with him in person at the Flight 19 Memorial Service last December 5, 2000, when I was present with TLC’s film crew. Bruce is far from a “salesman” or publicity seeker. He strikes one as contemplative and non aggressive. The only reason his account became public was from his friendship with the late J. Manson Valentine, who often cataloged the unexplained in the Bermuda Triangle and was the source for Charles Berlitz’s 2 books on the subject. Gernon was so amazed at his encounter that he wrote down details shortly after it happened and even began to do some of his own investigating. Here he shares some of what he encountered and what he has discovered over the last 30 years of flying the Triangle. His keen memory for detail has aided in the production of pictures and maps, detailing what he experienced. In his own words: here on late night in the midlands
